  Technology Tips

Tech Tip #1: Spring cleaning: 10 Things You Need to Change About Your Digital Life
Ten days - that's all it takes to get your digital life back on track. Whether you haven't cleaned your phone in months (hey, we're not judging) or have a password that's way too easy to guess, this nonintimidating plan will help you clean up and kick off a fresh start. Read more in the article found HERE.

Tech Tip #2: Best external storage for iPhones and iPads
The iPhone and iPad are limited in that their lack of USB or SD ports means there's no way of quickly getting extra storage, or checking out some photos a friend gives you on a memory stick. However, there are a number of storage devices and adaptors that can use WiFi and Apple's own Lightning port to connect, allowing for additional storage. Read more in the article found HERE.

Tech Tip #3: This trick can free up gigabytes of space on your iPhone or iPad
It seems like iPhone storage is always at a premium, especially if you have an entry-level model with just 16GB (an economic necessity for many an iPhone owner). It's the rare user who doesn't know the pain of trying to download a new app or snap a few more photos and seeing the dreaded "not enough storage" message. This unusual (and risk-free) hack can free up hundreds of megabytes, or maybe even a couple gigabytes. Read more in the tutorial found HERE. is a free educational portal for teachers, parents, homeschoolers and students. Visitors come from around the world to find Internet resources for their educational needs. One can find resources ranging from lesson plans to worksheets, individual grade level resources to templates, and even interactive learning games.  We were very honored when one teacher called the site a "Walmart for Teachers". If you cannot find what you need for instruction on any topic, please feel free to email us and we will help you find resources to fit your needs.
